I think you have to be an Arsenal fan to really appreciate just how different last night's performance was for us and exactly why it was so exciting for us.

I can definitely understand why other clubs fans might think we are going completely ott about winning 1 game :-)

{Ed047's Note - to read some of the posts on the United page slating Arsenal and this so called media hype around our win was just embarrassing.

That Arteta has done more in a few weeks or less with our squad compared to what OGS has done with theirs in months is like light and day and they clearly don’t like it.

Whilst we can’t say our squad is the best by any stretch, there’s for me, for the money spent, is shocking.

They are probably further away from a title winning side as they were in 2013 after their last one.

You’d have to be stupid not to see what’s been achieved, yes it’s the first shoots, but that’s how it’s starts.

It’s just so pleasing to see us play as a team, in a system, with the right mentality. The latter bit being the most pleasing to see.

Where Arteta takes us or doesn’t is just something we wait to unfold and right now I am more than impressed with both him and the squad. In a minute Xhaka may even make me eat some humble! 🤦‍♂️

Are we over reacting - probably but I was more p@ssed off with the under reaction to the flacid Emery. Give him time. Give him 3 seasons. bullsh@t

We’ve been frustrated for over 10 years and all the issues were known to almost everyone on this site. I could have done a better job at trying to sort the problem than Emery. when will we buy a CDM Vs another luxury player. why are we playing a high line with Per. why are both full backs and 1 CD pushing forward when we’re 1 up.

That’s why we are passionate about what Arteta is doing and a number of pundits took 18 months to see Emery had no clothes. We’re tired of the library, we’re tired of being rolled over by the same pass or same cross - of course we’re going to over react and get excited. 🖕 if you don’t like it - where’s the harm in supporting your club. I’m glad Utd are annoyed at us because as soon as Fergie said nice things - I knew he didn’t see us as a threat.

I’m proud to over react and be happy about a vision of our club we’ve all been crying out for. Worry about your own team and let us celebrate small victories as every oak tree started as an acorn. I’m excited and hopeful - like I haven’t been for years.

Did I over-react? 👊.

I'm with you 100% Ed047 mate but I really do understand why fans of lots of other clubs don't get why it's such a huge deal for us, I think it's one of those you need to have been there and lived it to actually truly get it.

{Ed047's Note - like you I’m not immediately expecting the world but the green shoots are just something we haven’t seen for what seems like ever.

Again i totally agree Ed mate, Artetta has come in and said " look look first you need to put on your under pants then your trousers, then you need to put on your socks before you put on your shoes not the other way round :-) .
I might not seem a big deal to other people but after years and years of us fans screaming at Arsene and Dick to take the gloves off their feet and pants off their heads last night was revelation and brilliant reminder on the art of looking good feeling good.

{Ed047's Note - and like SY said it’s not an overreaction but just a pleasure to see mate. Baby steps.

Absolutely! Someone finally addressing what has for so long needed to be addressed with comon sense tactics methods and ideas that makes perfect sense to every man and his dog is a very good reason for every player and every fan to once again finally think " maybe just maybe " with real conviction rather than having to look for positives and pretend to ourselves the obvious Negatives didn't exist.

Who knew if the back 4 weren't totally exposed throughout the 90 minutes they might actually not look so awful as they've been painted as either a group or as individuals and a central midfield partnership with clear instructions who trained in between games as they would be asked to play on match days might actually know what was expected of them and suddenly deliver it.

As we all know our players individually cannot be that awful to be rolled over this way. So yes we have every right to get excited and as sy said over react because we have seen something in this team.
Also ed about xhaka I really hope you are right. At least then we can see why arsene and other thought he's useful.

{Ed047's Note - me too Moe, it’s just not something I’d ever thought I’d see but if he comes good I’ll be more than happy.
